Hello from London, UK
on: September 28, 2020, 07:06:41 PM
Hi Everyone, rather than be a lurker I'd just like to say hello.  I don't actually have a CB500X at present but I'm planning to purchase a one in January when I figure that dealers will be keen to move on their unsold 2020 bikes at a bargain price given the general economic outlook.  I'm an experienced rider and at present my main ride is a BMW R1150RT but I also have a BMW R100GS and a Kawasaki Z1.  My plan with the CB500X is to turn it into a long distance adventure platform as it appears to be an ideal bike in that it can: cruise at 80mph, handle reasonably rough terrain where necessary, has a decent tank range/fuel economy and a bullet proof engine.  Not to mention weighing significantly less than a fully ladened 1250 GS!  This forum has proved a real goldmine of valuable information and practical advice and confirmed I'm making the right decision - many thanks. :028:

It really depends on the market, here in California there's a high demand on cb500X bikes so even old-new units (1 mile) have a good price, especially ABS models. Anyway, hope you get a good deal!
